Rehearsal Dinners at Battery Park Bar and Lounge

When I was planning my wedding, one of the hardest things to narrow down was a rehearsal dinner location.  Sure, there are tons of beautiful hotels in the Downtown Boston area to have a wedding – it’s just a matter of choosing one.  But rehearsal dinner locations?  Yeah, that’s a different story.  Most couples want something more than just a private function room.  They want something unique, in a great location, fun, affordable, and of course, great food too.

Now, when us girls have a good tip, we should always share it.  And that’s why I wanted to tell you about Battery Park Bar and Lounge.  If you haven’t heard about Battery Park Bar and Lounge, I am so thrilled to be the person to introduce you to it.

Battery Park Bar and Lounge is located in the Financial District in Downtown Boston (33 Batterymarch Street).  There are so many things I love about this place but the most unique feature is their outdoor patio which I think is absolutely terrific for a rehearsal dinner.  They can seat 80 for a sit down dinner (or if you are thinking simply a cocktail and appetizer rehearsal dinner, they can accommodate about 110).  And speaking of food – you have to check out their menu (  Think casual, comfort food.  Yum.  The chef will even create a custom menu for you or make some changes to their existing menu to make sure you are 100% happy with your menu for the evening (and you should be 100% happy  – this is your rehearsal dinner!!!).

You may be having several out-of-town family and bridal party members in for your wedding and rehearsal dinner, so location is key.  Something I wanted to provide my out-of-town guests was a location where they could take advantage of what the city has to offer.  You might be thinking that the Financial District is the last place your guests want to visit, but just think a few blocks away.  After your dinner, your guests can simply walk a couple of blocks and be right in the middle of Faneuil Hall – a perfect location to end the night.  Even if you plan on making it an early evening, others may not.  Faneuil Hall offers bars and comedy clubs and a great place to continue your outdoor night.

As a side note, Battery Park Bar and Lounge is also the perfect place to kick off your bachelorette party evening.

If you like what you see, contact them ASAP, especially if your wedding is this summer or fall.  Check them out at or email for more information.
